As I'm sure you are all aware, we are in some trying times at the moment and it is changing each day. Those of you who struggle with change, will need to hang on tight as it is going to be a bumpy ride! With schools and daycare closed in Nova Scotia, it is also going to be very difficult for a lot of people. Support one another as much as you can. Together we will get through this. Someone said think of our ancestors who had to go to war, we just have to practice social distancing and stay home. I consider ourselves very lucky indeed.
I saw a posting on Facebook today that just made me laugh. It said ATTENTION Knitters and Crocheters (should have said Rug Hookers as well), DO NOT FEAR SELF QUARANTINE, THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TRAINING FOR! No truer words. We are in our glory if we can sit and create, uninterrupted is even better, but sometimes we can't have it all.
Lynne Lines and I had volunteered to teach Rug Hooking, a Miniature Project with the Seniors College last week. The 7 participants enjoyed their day and a few are still finishing up their projects. Barbara stopped by yesterday to show me her completed piece. I think she did an excellent job.
Below is a group photo.
This week in the mail, Norma dropped into the studio to pick up more of my Christmas Blue she used in her background. She is hooking a Christine Little tree skirt pattern with snowmen. It is simply gorgeous. My Heather's red is on the edge.
Cardinal Tree Skirt Update, Marilyn, Barb and I have been busy working away at our tree skirts as time permits. Our thoughts and prayers are with Marilyn as her mom is in the hospital.
Try to stay calm, remember god doesn't give us anything we can't handle. Practice being kind to one another and enjoy being creative if you can.
